KSST listeners will have two opportunities this holiday to hear an hour-long adaptation of Charles Dickens tale, A Christmas Carol, performed by cast members of the Sulphur Springs Community Players. The play’s title is ‘A Christmas Carol: Adapted for Radio On Stage’ and it was first presented to local audiences from the stage of Main Street Theater earlier this month. Now, through a special arrangement with the author and with KSST Radio, the audio will be aired twice; at 7pm on Tuesday December 24 Christmas Eve, and aired again on Christmas morning December 25 at 10am. Viewers to Cable Channel 2 will also be able to hear the presentations. The play, performed live in the style of the Golden Age of Radio, tells the timeless Dickens tale with two dozen different voices performed by the actors and the accompanying sounds produced by a sound effects team onstage. KSST was allowed a special audio recording to be presented to our listeners, with permission from playwright Anthony Palmero who adapted and arranged the classic. Please tune in to KSST 1230AM and let this gift enhance your holiday celebration as well as your listening pleasure!
It’s never easy to have a perfect performance where every actor executes his or her lines and entrances perfectly, but this presentation is as close as they come. Plan to listen and enjoy live local theater at it’s best in these two special playbacks. Here are some photos of a few of the cast and crew of the 2019 ‘A Christmas Carol; Adapted for Radio On Stage’.
